State Street: Gold ‘Definitely Works’ and is an ‘Inflation Hedge’, ‘Dollar Hedge’ in Era of Heightened Geopolitical Risk’

◆ State Street’s senior multi-asset strategist, Benjamin Jones, discusses the importance of gold in asset allocation on “Bloomberg Daybreak: Europe”

◆ “Bitcoin or gold?” “I prefer gold. Bitcoin is interesting but would I suggest it to my clients … definitely no … but it might be a bit of fun to own on the side”

◆ Gold is a “hedge in an era of heightened geopolitical risk” and period of nations not wanting to rely on the U.S. and not relying on the dollar

◆ This is clearly seen in the amount of gold that central banks such as China, Russia and Poland are buying

◆ There is still a lot of capacity for central banks and investors to buy gold in 2020
